Will Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Attend The 2021 Emmy Awards? 'The Sussexes Are In High Demand,' Source Says
Lights, camera, action! Emmy Award bosses are trying to get Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to attend the lavish event — and present an award, The Sun reported.
“The Sussexes are in high demand — it would be their first red carpet appearance since Megxit and their full-time Californian move," the source told the outlet. “Oprah is planning to attend the night, which could help get them there."
“Certainly, there would be a VIP invite for them from Netflix at its evening celebration event," the insider added. “Netflix knows that shots of them with big Hollywood names would be huge PR.”

The couple's Winfrey special — Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, which aired on March 7 — is among the five nominees for Outstanding Hosted Non-Fiction Series or Special.
The other shows in this category include David Letterman's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, United Shades of America W. Kamau Bell, VICE and Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy.
It's unclear if the pair — who moved to California in 2020 — have accepted the invite to attend the September 19 ceremony.
Before Meghan, 40, joined the royal family, she had a taste of the Hollywood lifestyle, as she starred in Suits and her father, Thomas Markle, won three Emmys when he was a lighting director.

Thomas even recalled the moment when his daughter knew she wanted to break out into showbiz.
"I believe this is the day around the time she was 12 when I was nominated once again for a nation Emmy Award, and I asked Meghan to be my date," Thomas, who now resides in Mexico, told Fox News.
"Once she was on the red carpet with me and the flashes were popping and the lights blaring and the red carpet blinded you all over ... Meghan turned to me and said ‘Daddy, I want to be famous just like you one day.' I turned to her and said, ‘You are famous to me already and in life family is all that really matters,'" he added.
